The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Matthew 5:16 (Not “make them bow,” but rather “let them see” – that’s the model Jesus left us.)
Matthew 12:38-42 (Here Jesus describes how the Queen of Sheba was so impressed by what she’d heard of the God of Israel that she came to see Israel’s king for herself. The fuller story is found in 1 Kings 10:1-10. If she was impressed with what God had given through Solomon, how much more should wise people today be impressed with what God has given through Christ!)
